A bud of mine just got a PS2 and like computer RPGs, but has stayed away from console RPGs mostly due to not liking the traditional japanese formula of having rnadom battles by unseen entities.  Are there series out there for PS2s whic hare good that don't use this mechanic?  I am an RPG junkie myself, though I don't mind random battles, but I just got a PS2 myself and have missed out on all the good RPGs that have ocme out since I first had a PS2 back when FF-X was new.

Well, like Kingdom Hearts would be one, I guess, since you can see the bad guys before you fight them.  More of an action-RPG, though, but with more depth than a Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance.

Hmm... Maybe Dark Cloud 2.  I remember being able to see the enemies before battle.  It's certainly a deep game.

And it's by the same developers who made Dragon Quest 8 and the upcoming Rogue Galaxy.

Grandia 3, 2, and XTreme,  Magna Carta, Radiata Stories, Xenosaga 1 and 2, Arc the Lad : Twilight of the Spirits, Star Ocean, and Breath of Fire : Dragon Quarter all have onscreen enemies rather than random battles.
